Flex and PHP: Party in the Front, Business in the Back

in PHP added by CalEvans, on 13/5/2007 advanced tutorials flash flex mvc ria zend framework

Since the first time I really saw and understood what Flash was and did, I've been jealous of what Flash designers could do. Beyond just the cute animations for banner ads and games, Flash designers have always had a much more fine-grained control on their environment that HTML allows for. Besides my innate inability to design anything like a usable interface, the main drawback that has kept me from exploiting Flash is I never could get my head around the "Movie Timeline" metaphor for programming. As we say back home, "It just ain't right."

That all changed with Flex. Now programmers can work with tools they are comfortable with and still take advantage of all of Flash's...well, flash. Flex won't help developers like me design eye-pleasing interfaces any more than a new pencil would improve my inability to draw. However, I can now put much more useful interfaces on my back-end code. That brings us to our topic, using Flex as a front-end for PHP web services. More specific, we will be using PHP and the Zend Framework as the back-end data source for a Flex application.

Integrated PHP and Flex development with Zend Studio and Flex Builder

in PHP added by goodphptutorials, on 30/10/2008 adobe flex advanced tutorials zend studio

As rich Internet applications (RIAs) built with Adobe Flex become more widely adopted, there is a growing demand for applications that can combine the user interface (UI), media, and client-side benefits of Flex with the power and versatility of a server-side language like PHP. Tight integration between Flex and a server-side language means that your users will have an intuitive, engaging user experience with all the functionality they need. For developers, tight integration between PHP and the Flex development environments can provide big benefits by ensuring a smoother workflow for coding, debugging, and managing a project. You can make the most of such a unified environment by using Adobe Flex Builder and Zend Studio for Eclipse together.

AJAX pagination made simple

in PHP added by goodphptutorials, on 22/7/2006 advanced tutorials

Paginated lists in web pages imply specific controls to navigate across pages (link to previous and next page, link to a specific page, etc.). And lists are paginated because they are often too big to load. But when AJAX comes in, this last constraint disappears, and the specific controls can easily be replaced by a more intuitive tool: The browser's scroll bar.

Website error pages are perhaps one of the most overlooked pieces of a fully rounded website. Not only are they important but they give you the opportunity to have a little fun.

In addition, we will spice up the design a bit, add basic navigation and link to the website sitemap.
